x^2 + y^2  8x + 2y = 1
To bring the above equation into its standard form, complete the squares by adding 16 and 1 on both the sides
x^2  8x + 16 + y^2 + 2y + 1 = 1 + 16 + 1
(x  4)^2 + (y + 1)^2 = 16 > This is in the form of (xh)^2 + (yk)^2 = r^2
r = 4
Answer: D

Let me try to answer.
You are given that the standard equation of a circle > (x−h)^2+(y−k)^2=r^2 where, r=radius of the circle.
Now, you are given another circle with the equation > x^2 + y^2  8x + 2y = 1 , when you compare this to the standard equation of the circle, you should realize that it would be straightforward to calculate the radius of the circle if you can express x^2 + y^2  8x + 2y = 1 in the form of (x−h)^2+(y−k)^2=r^2
In order to make complete squares similar to (xh)^2 or (yk)^2, you need to remember that (x+a)^2=x^2+a^2+2ax and (xa)^2=x^2+a^22ax
With these relations in mind, lets go back to x^2 + y^2  8x + 2y = 1 with a focus on converting x^2 + y^2  8x + 2y to 2 complete squares (1 with x and 1 with y).
x^2 + y^2  8x + 2y > (x^28x+1616)+(y^2+2y+11) = (x4)^2 16 + (y+1)^21 > x^2 + y^2  8x + 2y = 1 can thus be written as :
(x4)^2 16 + (y+1)^21 = 1 >(x4)^2 + (y+1)^2 = 16 = 4^2.
NOw you can compare this form to (x−h)^2+(y−k)^2=r^2 to get h = 4, k=1 and r=radius = 4.
Thus, D is the correct answer.
For questions such as these you need to move backwards from what has been given to you and to modify the given values into a more usable form.
Hope this helps.

Hi Juan,
The trick here is to convert everything in the standard form of equation of a circle, which is:
\((x−h)^2+(y−k)^2=r^2\)
We are given the equation of a circle in some other form (expanded form of the standard equation)
\(x^2+y^2−8x+2y=−1\)
On grouping terms,
\(x^2−8x+y^2+2y=−1\)
From here on, we need to make two perfect squares in x and y
The best way to understand which perfect square to make is by dissecting the coefficient of x and y
8 = 2*1*4, 2 = 2*1*1
We are writing the coefficients in this form, because the coefficient of x in \({(x+a)}^2 = x^2 + 2ax + a^2\) (Eq i) is 2*1*a
\(x^2−2*x*4 + y^2+2*1*y = 1\)
Now we need the constant terms to make these perfect squares.
The constant term in Eq (i) is a
Hence we can write \(x^2−2*1*4x + y^2+2*1*y = 1\) as
\(x^2−2*x*4 + 16 + y^2+2*1*y + 1 = 1 + 16 + 1\) (adding constants on both sides of the equation)
\({(x4)}^2 + {(y+1)}^2 = 16\)
\({(x4)}^2 + {(y+1)}^2 = 4^2\)
Hence the radius = 4. Option D

Bunuel 
I simply factored (xh)^2 + (yk)^2 = r^2
[x^22xh + h] + [y^22yk + y^2] = r^2
If it can be reduced to
x^2 +y^2 8x +2y 1
Then don't H and K have to be 4 and 1? Unless I'm making some assumption here that wouldn't necessarily apply to some other example please let me know
If (x4)^2 + (y  (1))^2 = r^2
(44)^2 + (1 +1)^2 = r^2
(2)^2= r^2
4= r^2
4 = \sqrt{r}
4= r

\(x^2−8x+y^2+2y=−1\)

The best way to understand which perfect square to make is by dissecting the coefficient of x and y

We are writing the coefficients in this form, because the coefficient of x in \({(x+a)}^2 = x^2 + 2ax + a^2\) (Eq i) is 2*1*a
\(x^2−2*x*4 + y^2+2*1*y = 1\)
Now we need the constant terms to make these perfect squares.
The constant term in Eq (i) is a
Hence we can write \(x^2−2*1*4x + y^2+2*1*y = 1\) as
\(x^2−2*x*4 + 16 + y^2+2*1*y + 1 = 1 + 16 + 1\) (adding constants on both sides of the equation)
\({(x4)}^2 + {(y+1)}^2 = 16\)
\({(x4)}^2 + {(y+1)}^2 = 4^2\)
Hence the radius = 4. Option D
Yes but don't forget to explain you derived 16 and 1 by taking half of the coefficients 8 and 1 and then squaring them. For example, if we have an algebraic expression that cannot be factored such as x10x18=0  then we complete the square. How?
x10x __ = 18 (add 18 to both sides or really just put 18 on the other side)
x10x +25 = 18 + 25 (remember how to get the coefficients? In this equation a= 1 b= 10; take (b/2)^2 and add to both sides
(x5)(x5) = 43
x5 = + or minus 43

A. 1
B. 1
C. 2
D. 4
E. 8
VERITAS PREP OFFICIAL SOLUTION:
What should first jump out is that the equation for this particular circle does not match the standard equation of a circle. So you'll need to do some algebra to get to that point.
Your first step should be to factor the x and y terms so that they fit the standard form. Since each term needs to be factored into a squared parenthetical, you should use the common quadratic form \((a−b)^2=a^2−2ab+b^2\) as your guide. Look at the coefficients −8x and +2y, recognizing that they need to fill the −2ab role in that common quadratic equation. This means that you'll factor the x and y terms into:
\((x−4)^2=x^2−8x+16\)
and
\((y−(−1)^2)=y^2+2y+1\)
So now you know that the lefthand side of the standard equation of a circle produces the combination of \(x^2−8x+16+y^2+2y+1\), which equals \(x^2−8x+y^2+2y+17\). So now you know two equations to be true:
\(x^2−8x+y^2+2y+17=r^2\)
and
\(x^2+y^2−8x+2y=−1\)
That second equation can be quickly made to look like the first by adding 1 to both sides:
\(x^2+y^2−8x+2y+1=0\)
Which means that the difference between the two equations is that the lefthand side is 16 apart and the righthand side is r^2 apart. So to balance, add 16 to the left and r^2 to the right, meaning that r^2=16. This means that the radius is 4, making answer choice D correct.

x^2 + y^2 8x +2y = 1
x^2 8x +16 + y^2 + 2y +1 = 1+16+1
(x4)^2 + (y+1)^2 = 4^2
We can compare the equation with (xh)^2 + (yk)^2 = r^2
we get, r=4
